Experience the ultimate in outdoor dining and entertainment with Chicago Brick Oven. Made in the USA, this wood-fired pizza oven will become the centerpiece of your outdoor kitchen for its versatility, durability and performance. Unlike other pizza ovens that have a separate firebox, Chicago Brick Oven features a low, igloo-shaped dome design which is modeled from ancient Italian wood-fired oven designs. The flue system creates a steady draft along the dome to prevent smoke from exiting through the front. This makes it easy to cook wood-fired pizza, steaks, chicken, veggies, and other recipes. The design of the oven creates a FlameRoll, using the vent to pull the flame horizontally across the top of the dome and then vertically back down the side, creating temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit for superior cooking. The special shape of the oven reduces cold spots and ensures that the radiant heat is used efficiently. The oven has a 27 X 22-inch cooking area. Combining traditional brick oven design with modern engineering, this outdoor oven is made from refractory cement and stainless steel fibers. Chicago Brick Ovens are highly sought after because they are certified to UL standards. You or a professional contractor can create the perfect design to showcase your outdoor pizza oven in non-combustible materials. The CBO-500 pizza oven comes as a complete package with the oven, installation kit, infrared thermometer, pizza peel and cleaning brush.

Things We Love:
Cook More Than Just Pizza
If you’re like most people, the first thing you’ll think of cooking in a pizza oven is, well, pizza. But how does a wood-fired steak sound? What about smoke-infused chicken? With spacious Chicago Brick Oven pizza ovens, you have enough room for those outside-the-box foods and large pizzas alike! The 1000 Series has a cooking surface of 53 inches by 39 inches, compared with the 750 Series’ 41-inch-by-28-inch cooking area. The 500 Series, the smallest of these models, has a cooking area of 27 inches by 22 inches but can still crank out some serious food.
Wood-burning Fuel Enhances Flavor
All three Chicago Brick oven series are available as wood-burning ovens, giving your food an authentic, wood-fired taste. Whether you want genuine pizza or meats with a little Italian flair, the flavor you get from these ovens won’t disappoint.
Special Shape Controls Heat and Maintains Temperature
Chicago Brick Oven models use FlameRoll technology that pulls flames across the top and sides of their dome-shaped ovens to enhance wood-fired flavors. The dome shape itself keeps temperature consistent and evenly cooks food, working with the interior refractory cement to retain heat up to 1,000 degrees. Thanks to their efficiently designed flues, these ovens trap smoke that fills food with authentic, brick-oven flavors and aromas.
Available in a Variety of Fuel Types
For those who consider building and maintaining a fire to be a hassle, the 750 Series might just be the pizza oven for you. These units are available as both a wood-burning DIY kit or a pre-built hybrid oven with two infrared gas burners in addition to the usual wood-burning capabilities. These gas burners, which come in natural gas or propane, conveniently let you cook without having to sustain a fire.
Though the 500 and 1000 Series are configured only as wood-burning ovens, you might come to view tending a fire as one of the most enjoyable and fulfilling parts of using a pizza oven!
Different Installation Options to Suit Your Needs
No two outdoor kitchens are exactly the same, so Chicago Brick Oven designed its pizza ovens to be installed in more than one way. The wood-burning models found in all three series are built-in ovens that come as DIY kits, while the 750 Series can either be set into a countertop of used on a stand. Just pick the option that works best for you and fire up that oven!
Designed to Withstand the Elements
While these pizza ovens are known for their authenticity, performance, and convenience, they’re also durable enough to serve as a lasting piece of your outdoor space. Chicago Brick Oven models are reliably made in America and built to handle the varying temperatures across the country. If you trust these pizza ovens to bring a slice of Italy to your home, you can rest assured they’ll last for years to come.
Things To Consider:
The pizza oven experience is one like no other and designed to be exactly that — an experience
Chicago Brick Oven units require about 45 minutes of pre-heating to reach desired temperatures. Before using your pizza oven, make sure to put it through a curing process to remove any moisture lingering in small pockets of the oven. For the wood-burning ovens, start with a slow fire to let the moisture trickle out — getting your oven too hot too fast could damage its efficiency and longevity while also voiding your warranty. Keep in mind that any small cracks appearing in the concrete during this process are normal and will not affect the oven’s performance. Curing the oven at a temperature close to, but no higher than, 212 degrees for six hours each over three straight days will evaporate any remaining moisture.
When it comes to the hybrid pizza oven, the pair of built-in infrared gas burners will be your curing tools. Use the bottom switch to set the hearth burner to 250 degrees, and let it run for four hours with the door open. Once that’s done, turn the hearth burner up to 400 degrees and use the top switch to turn on the ambient burner. After another four hours, your oven will be properly cured. If you’re using the CBO-750 Built-in Hybrid, note that you should never run it with the door fully closed.
Some Assembly Required
Depending on which Chicago Brick Oven model you choose, some assembly may be required. For instance, the built-in DIY kits must be properly assembled and enclosed in non-combustible materials such as brick. The 750 built-in countertop hybrid pizza ovens, however, require no installation and can be used once they’re cured. The 1000 Series is recommended for commercial use, while the 500 and 750 Series are perfect for residential settings.
